Cops Break Up $500 Million Dollar Illegal Gambling Mob in N.J.!

March 30, 2007 at 11:24 A.M., I cannot access my msn group to post this essay. I will keep trying to do so.

Richard G. Jones, "Authorities Break Up Illegal Gambling Operations in New York and New Jersey," in The New York Times, March 29, 2007, at p. B5.

"NEWARK, March 28 -- The authorities in New York and New Jersey said on Wednesday that they had broken up two separate illegal [Internet] gambling operations, arresting more than 60 people, including two former New York City police officers."

"The New Jersey operation brought in revenues of more than $500 MILLION over the last 18 months, officials said, and the New York outfit generated more than $30 million in the last 10 months."

"... 'This is not a storefront operation, this is not a mom-and-pop operation,' said Louis A. Valentin, the Monmouth County Prosecutor, who, in conjunction with the New Jersey State Police, anounced the arrests of 47 people and warrants for a dozen others.' ..."

This kind of money buys a lot of politicians in New Jersey, where it takes courage and great care in the persons "selected" to participate in such an investigative operation -- so that leaks will not warn the bad guys -- to bring to completion a multi-year operation aimed, indirectly, at the caudillo that controls public institutions in the Garden State.

I have a feeling that another big surprise is coming for the Jersey Boys.

I would not be surprised if a few New Jersey judges will be found to have participated in the occasional placing of bets, even in sharing the spoils yielded by this criminal enterprise, although whether such people will be prosecuted is never certain in the Garden State.

More prosecutors like Mr. Valentin are needed. He is honest and tough on crooks, but fair. Other good prosecutors may be found in Hudson and Essex Counties, throughout New Jersey, though I will not name them so as not to cause them difficulties by association with me.

I fear that Mr. Valentin may find himself assigned to a traffic squad in a Municipal Court next to the highway, if he is too successful. The way to rise to prominence in prosecutorial circles in New Jersey is by means of "politics."

David Kocieniewski, "Medical School in New Jersey Selects Leader," The New York Times, March 29, 2007, at p. B6.

"Dr. William F. Owen Jr., Chancellor of the University of Tennessee Health Service Center, was approved as the new president of New Jersey's financially troubled state medical school."

"Dr. Owen, 51, a kidney specialist who earned his bachelor's degree from Brown University and his medical degree from Tufts University has published more than 200 scholarly articles ... "

"Trustees of New Jersey's state medical school, the University of Medicine and Dentistry in Newark, voted yesterday to approve Dr. Owen's appointment."

"The university has been under supervision by a federal monitor for more than a year, ever since investigators uncovered widespread financial irregularities, including no-bid contracts, kickbacks and Medicaid fraud."

The total amounts stolen at UMDNJ may never be known, but it is estimated to total hundreds of millions of dollars or more. $400 MILLION estimated. The people who got rich from that stolen money, with political protection, from the same goons obstructing my communication efforts (probably), are exactly the political whores (of both genders) who anounce "get tough" policies to deal with the crime problem.

Send the dictionary definition of the word "hypocrisy" to New Jersey's Supreme Court and Legislature, "anonymously" -- the way they like to do things. They like to strike when one's back is turned or when victims are otherwise involuntarily incapacitated "for their own good."

Serge F. Kovaleski, "Trenton: More Pressure on Corzine," in The New York Times, March 29, 2007, at p. B4.

"Two public interest lawyers said yesterday that they planned to ask the united States attorneys for New jersey and Washington to open a criminal investigation into whether Governor Jon S. Corzine falsified disclosure statements he filed when he was a United States senator [sic.] by not including a $470,000 loan to his companion. The lawyers, Carl J. Mayer and Bruce Afran, said they intended to ask the prosecutors to determine if Mr. Corzine ... violated the False Statements Accountability Act of 1996 [lying?] by not listing the loan to Carla Katz, a prominent state labor leader, in his Senate disclosure reports over three years. Last October, Mr. Corzine, facing scrutiny from the Senate Ethics Committee, [payback for Corzine's anti-corruption efforts?] amended those documents to reflect the loan, which he eventually forgave. Ms. Katz, president of Local 1034 of the Communications Workers of America, and Mr. Corzine 'dated' from 2002 to 2004."

There are several theories that efforts to "get" Corzine are an attempt to grab power by New Jersey's political-criminal mob that considers Corzine "unreliable" because he refuses to accept bribes, unlike many of his predecessors. Reliable criminality is preferred by the Jersey Boys in "their" elected officials. Menendez, as usual, is alleged to playing on both sides of the fence. "On the one hand; but on the other hand." Mr. Corzine was hoping to "date" the voters of New Jersey now that he's single. Sadly, things look a little lonely for Jon this Saturday night.

"Them Jersey guys, I dunno ... Wadda-ya-gonna do, badda-bing, badda-boom!"
